He questioned the need for an additional exam after such comprehensive training.
Gyamfi decried the Teacher Licensure Exams as a “dubious ploy” by the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government to cut down on teacher recruitment due to financial constraints.
He revealed that many qualified teacher trainees fail the exams, leaving them jobless and forcing some to resort to bribery to secure licenses.
Gyamfi emphasized the lack of transparency in the Teacher Licensure Exams marking scheme, noting that pass marks are arbitrarily adjusted to suit the government’s hiring needs. He further pointed out that even those who eventually pass the exams often face delays in employment.
